No Stamping..boo hoo!

For those of you who know me, you would of heard all about my little surgery I had last week. Nothing drastic at all and I suppose it's classed as cosmetic surgery. I've had.... laser eye surgery. After 30 years of wearing glasses I can now see! I feel a lot younger for it I have to say and something I would highly recommend, in the hands of a reputible company I will add. There's a few dodgy ones out there that I wouldn't of touched for love nor money. Anyway, my eyes aren't fully back to normal as yet and although I can see distances crystal clear, my near vision is a little unfocused. There's me thinking all would be perfect straight away, which it more or less is, but the reading and crafting has been rather frustrating. So, I was all set to do a bit of stamping at the weekend but I just couldn't do it. I did however manage to make this gorgeous tall box with not a spot of stamping on it.

I do love my boxes and this was inspired by the ones I made last year here, here and here. Blimey I didn't realise I'd made that many and still no instructions! I promise to do them next week without fail and this new box will be a Mothers Day class in March with instructions afterwards.

I've now bought myself a daylight lamp which came yesterday so I'm happy to be back into my stamping.

Thanks for stopping by. There'll be more Sale-a-bration inspiration to follow soon...
